    Here is the pattern I used for the gnomes
    http://weefolkart.com/?q=node/187 However I didn't have the pegs so I used some clay. One small package of clay made the 2 heads (they're just under 1" across) and 1 body, which are about 1" across and about 2.5" tall, and I had to use a half a package of a different color for the other body but it's covered so it doesn't matter. But the website uses some pegs. You could probably also use some really fat dowels cut down and something about the size of a moth ball for the heads and glue them together. The website also has a pattern for making the gnomes completely from clay but I think they are much tinier.

    And I believe this is essentially what I followed to make the pumpkin
    http://www.ehow.com/how_12048492_mak...ncushions.html

    No pictures but it's pretty simple. I did the top a little differently because I couldn't find this again when I was actually making it and all I really remembered was "make a circle, draw it closed, make the segments, put something over the top for a stem". Except that, that website doesn't tell you how to make the segments. Grr.

    Well once you pull the top closed, you then take the thread and wrap it real tight down to the bottom, and bring the needle back up through the middle and repeat that all around, try to come up through the same hole in the bottom

    This messenger bag is beautiful. Did you follow a pattern? I would love to make one for my ten year old daughter. Your work is amazing. Love the gnomes.
